Todays lunch is Asian Sesame Soba noodles from Trader Joes.  Very unique flavor.  I really like them.

Tomorrow is Day 2 of the push up challenge for me so lets talk about weight and exercise, shall we?

I saw this interesting web page from a xanga post.

If you click on it you’ll see it’s all about a new magazine for plus size women, and their big thing is that there will be no diets in it! Annoying there is a Jillian Michaels Ad for weight loss on the Xanga page. Those ads are everywhere.  No one markets like Jillian.

The food companies in America spend the first 30 years of our lives making us fat, then the scammers spend the next 30 telling us we’re not good enough and trying to sell us miracle weight loss.  No wonder depression and anxiety rates are so high. It’s like we are being bullied every day.  Haha, you’re fat and old! 

I know I am currently food & exercise obsessed,  but it all started for me because in a six month period I was told two significant medical facts about myself.  One that would lead to uncontrollable weight gain (dead thyroid), and the other that would suffer terribly if I was overweight (kidney disease with very high blood pressure).    My choice was pretty clear.  Get in really really good shape, and be healthy, or don’t and be very unhealthy and live a short life.  I do not think you have to be thin to be happy or healthy.  I just think I have to be thin to be happy and healthy.  I just can’t take any more medicine than I do now, and I don’t know how to do anything in moderation.  I either do it, or I don’t!

Anywho…see what happens when I see one little Jillian Michaels ad?

My husband and I are going to Chicago this weekend!  Just for Friday and Saturday.  Going for a bowl of Lentil Soup, and an Egg Salad sandwich, pick up two 12 packs of Peach Fresca,  then to the Lincoln Park Zoo.  You know we love the zoos!  Hmm, I wonder if there is a zoo near Las Vegas?

Done with lunch!  It’s a shame because I had a paragraph in my head about people who ask questions instead of revealing their own personal information.  Maybe next time.
